As fate would have it, I walked further South than I should have during my Kirkby Stephen, Nateby, Waitby Common trek and I’m glad I did. If I hadn’t made that navigational mistake then I would never have discovered Lammerside Castle … or more accurately, the remains thereof.
Lammerside Castle is listed as a scheduled monument. Built in the 12th century it was rebuilt in the 14th century to include a pele tower, many of which were built along the English borders around that time. It is thought to have been abandoned in the 17th century.
